Individual Class Ranking
All courses taken for high school graduation credit are included in the calculation of class rank. The instructional level of each course, the student’s grade in each course and the total number of courses attempted are included in the computation of class rank. Under the Uniform Grading Policy passed by the South Carolina State Board of Education in September 2016, all course grades are based on a state-defined grading scale with corresponding grade point values for each numerical grade. In addition, the policy specifies that only courses taught at the Honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Dual Enrollment in College may be awarded additional weighting values (.5 quality points for Honors and 1.0 quality points for Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Dual Enrollment College).
